PixelPin worked with Digital Catapult to develop their pitch for funding. This helped them define who they were and exactly what their offering was. As a security company they needed the right kind of sponsors and backers to demonstrate trust, reliability and provide confidence to investors. They secured £750,000 investment.

Digital Catapult gave PixelPin the necessary focus to develop and provided training on how to manage the company’s growth. PixelPin took this advice to develop their toolset and expanded their development team from two to six.

“Digital Catapult has the strategic vision and focus to help kick start companies with digital innovation. Without their backing, we would no longer exist as a business today.

I would say to any company in this field, go and get help from Digital Catapult.”

Other benefits of working with Digital Catapult include networking with like-minded tech start-ups and the constant informal business advice and one-to-one consultations from the Digital Catapult team.

six developers in the short-term.
